Modern life has never been so busy, our time has never been so in demand and our technology has never been so brilliant! With tablets now becoming a normal part of school life and many apps designed for babies and toddlers, our little ones are destined to be technological whizzes before they are out of nappies. So let’s take a look at how you can make the most of your phone or tablet with apps for you and your baby or toddler.

Apps for Parents and Carers

Apps for Babies

Apps for Toddlers

You can also choose to see apps that help with specific developmental areas or narrow the list down to educational apps and watch as your youngster’s brain grows while having fun.

Check out this Nursery Rhymes App and sing along with your toddler, great for encouraging a shy boy to sing out loud. Or try Farm 123 with your little lady to help with number recognition in a relaxed and enjoyable way.

preschool apps Quizzing Toddler Preschool is a fun and educational app that does it all. Numbers, letters, shapes and colours presented in an easy to use and fun way.

Whichever apps you choose to share with your baby or toddler, check the reviews before buying, protect your device from accidental damage, make sure “in app purchases” are switched off and be on hand to share the fun! Use the apps to interact and they will enhance and enrich your lives, teaching skills for life through fun and smiles.
